THURSDAY. OCTOBER 11, I860.
"NATIONAL' union ticket.
Of Richmond County.
Election on Thursday 18th of October.
Vote for Docker jr.
A leading citizen ot Montgomery County
writes ua as follows :
" This section of the State will give Gen.
Dockery a large vote, notwithstanding he
has declined to be a candidate. I do hope
the whole State will see the importance of
electing him. His election would have a fine
effect in restoring us to the Union."
Dr. T. L. Banks.
"We are gratified to state that Dr. T. L.
Banks, at the urgent solicitation ofhisjfriends,
is a candidate for the House of Commons in
We are authorized to state that Dr. Banks
does not propose to tic his hands in advance
with reference to the Howard amendment.
He will do the best he can for his constitu
ents, if elected. He would not feel himself
at liberty to pledge himself to reject any
pending proposition, however distasteful, if
by so doing he knew he would bring still
srreater evils on his constituents.
Dr. Banks is a gentleman of character and
intelligence. His interests are thoroughly
identified with those of the people of Wake
County, and we feel sure that the people of
the County can safely confide their interests
to his hands.
We are requested to state that Dr. Banks
will be prevented by the duties of his profes
sion in cases which he cannot neglect, from
canvassing the entire County : but he will
attend as many public gatherings as he pos
Calvin J. Rogers, Esq.
We are requested by Calvin J. Rogers,
Esq., to state that his arrangements are
now such that he will be able hereafter
to attend at the various public gatherings
in the County.
Mt. Rogers will be at Willie Linn's to
day. The Union men of the State ought not to
" fall out by the way." We know that many
are in despair, and are not disposed to vote.
This is wrong. When you cease to vote you
agree that somebody else shall govern you.
You can thus choose masters as much by in
action as action. Go to the polls and vote
for Dockery. Vote for honest men to repre
sent yon in the Legislature. Let them be
reasonable, thoughtful men, who will not tie
up their hands in advance. Now, if ever,
is a time when the people should place
confidence in the honesty, judgment, and
liscretion of their representatives. We can
not tell what a day may bring forth.
When we are walking in the dark we must
not say we will or trill not take a certain,
direction, lest by our stubbornness we in
volve ourselves in utter destruction. Union
men who have passed together through so
many persecutions and troubles, ought to be
forbearing, generous, and kind towards each
We said in 1860, 1861, 1863, and 1865
that we would do so and so, and would
not do so and so. Have we not seen the
folly of such declarations? Is it possible
that any one supposes that our conquerors
can be safely defied and abused ? or that
we can conquer them by stubbornness,
when five hundred thousand soldiers were
no match for them ? or that we can gain
any thing by declaring that we will or will
not do so and so ? When your hand is in
the lion's mouth take it out as quietly and
as easily as you can. We are told that
the " Radicals " are determined to dishonor
and degrade us. Will they change this
purpose, if we provoke them still further?
Those among us who are still defiant and
rebellious, and who will do as they please,
ought to be prepared to Jight! Who is
prepared for that ?
These are "words of truth and sober
ness." Nevertheless, we shall be abused for
them. He who tells the truth in this cri
sis, and serves the people faithfully, must
expect to be abused.
The President said, last November, that
the election of Gov. Worth had "greatly
damaged the prospects of the State in the
restoration of her governmental relations."
He has neither retracted aor qualified this
language. He thinks the same tiling yet.
We cannot, therefore,Jsee how any true friend
to the President can vote for Gov. Worth.
Old Whigs can not consistently vote for
Gov. Worth, for he has deserted them and
attached himsel to the old Democrate party.
He has forgotten, or has ceased to practice
the lessons taught him by Henry Clay.
Old Democrats can not consistently vote
for Gov. Worth. Up to last November, when
he attached himself to the Democratic party,
he had devoted a long life to intense opposi
tion to Democracy. The time has been when
Jonathan Worth did not regard Democrats
as "decent" or "respectable." Remember
his bitter persecution of the lamented Charles
P. Fisher and Daniel W. Courts.
Alfred Dockery still holds those noble
Union principles which were taught him by
Henry Clay. He belongs to no party, but
is simply a National Union man. He is now
co-operating with men of all former politi
cal opinions in the effort to restore the Union.
With Andrew Johnson, he does not care for
party when his country is in danger.
The New Orleans Time of the 7th inst.,
announces that President Johnson has au
thorized that paper over his own signature
to publish the official account of the New
Orleans riots. The Times attacks Mayor
Monroe bitterly, and it is said is preparing
the way for a change of policy favorable to
he adoption of the Howard Amendment. :
The opening of the Catliolic Convention
at Baltimore was the most imposing display
of clergy ever seen in this country.
The re-election of Gov. Worth would have
a most disastrous "effect "for the Southern
States on the minds of the Northern people.
It would convince them that even North
Carolina, once the foremost Union State of
the South, does not desire to return to the
Union except on terms dictated by herself.
No matter what Southern men may think of
this determination to dictate terms to the
conqueror, it is regarded Dy tnree-lourtns ot
the Northern people as rank rebellion and
treason. We shall never get back to the
Union in that way.
The last New York limes, commenting
upon the Northern elections, says :
" Matters have been so mismanaged, not
only in Pennsylvania, but throughout the
North, that snpport of the President's policy
ot Kestoration involves a return 01 tne uem
ocratic Party to power ; and that price the
ueoole will not pay. They have no iaith in
that party in its principles, its patriotism.
its organization or its leaders."
The Times goes a bowshot beyond the
Ilerald in its comments upon the President's
The Wilmington Dispatch says that
further cases of cholera have been reported
in that city.
The Charleston Mercury is about to be
revived after a protracted suspension.
The celebrated horse-tamer, Professor J. S
Rarev. died suddenly in New York on last
Thursday a afternoon. He was a bachelor,
thirty-eight years of age.

THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT.
The country must be reconstructed. Every
interest of the present and the future de
mands this. The man who would captious
ly, or from any sinister reason as of ambition
pride of opinion, malice, or greed or gain, or
any other selfish ground set mmseii in op
position to any practicable measure suggest
ed by friend or foe, and involving no huniil
iation to any section of the country, and in
yading no guarantee of the Constitution, is a
man who, whatever may be his intellectual
ability, is unfitted by passion to be a safe
and friendly adviser to any portion of our
To accomplish this supreme act of peace
the President of the United bkitea has one
policy and the Congress has another. The
hiffh position of the Chief Executive, his
ability and long political experience, his na
tivity in the South, and his selection by the
North, entitle him his views and plans to the
profound respect of all the people. The Con
gress, the supreme legislature of this confed
eration or commonwealths, a co-ordinate
branch of the general government, and the
only acknowledged law-making power of the
Uepubhc, has also claims upon the respect
ful attention of every citizen. Now, it has
come to pass that the President has one pol
icy of reconstruction and the Congress an
other ; and our public misfortune is that the
chief legislative and the chief executive
branches of our government are so far apart,
and are separated by a chasm which unfor
tunately has been daily widened and deep
ened by passion, that there appears to be no
probability that they will ever be able to
agree upon a policy which shall be practiea
ble and just.
For our own part, we are free to say that
we regard both President and Congress as
worthy of consideration quite subordinately
to the stood ot the country, and that we can
have no partisan feeling against either. We
are for the country the whole country. We
have freely expressed any disapprobation we
have felt for the conduct of either of the po
litical beligerents. But now the question of
the common weal is upon us, and we must
shortly have some decision of this controver
sy, or have the country flung back into the
vortex of war and revolution.
This morning we endeavor to put far from
us all influence of prejudice and all sway of
passion, and sit down to the study of the
situation as calmly as we .nay and as serious
ly as the solemn issues demand.
A Southerner by birth, education, interest,
and an undying love for the people who are
nearest and dearest to our hearts, a love
which we have demonstrated by the sacrifi
ces we have shared with our stricken compa
triots, we believe, as an American whose coun
try now is this whole wide land, that what
ever will promote the prosperity of the South
will advance the interests of every part of
the United States. It is no sectional ques
tion, then, which we propound, when we sol
emnly ask, What is best for the South under
existing circumstances f
To that question we propose to strive to
find an answer.
If President Johnson's policy were practi
cable, that would probably still be best for
the South, and w ould most certainly have
been best if adopted promptly and at first.
But is it practicable ? We say nothing now
as to what we think mistakes upon the part
of the President in the beginning. For, if
his theory be correct, as he believed it, all his
movements in the erection of provisional
governments were incorrect. But this line
of remark we shall not pursue at present, and
only mention it to show what embarrass
ments he created in advance for the policy
which he subsequently inaugurated. Is it
impracticable f That is the question.
The people of the South are to remember
that they are the conquered. The victors
have the situation. The South must seek to
find what terras she can obtain.. She is not
in a position to dictate ; nay, 6he is hardly
in a position to make a demand of rights.
But, overpowered and bitterly disappointed,
it 8lie can calmly and wisely study the per
plexing problem in the case, she may reach a
solution not incompatible with the dignity
conferred upon her by her splendid but un
successful battles for constitutional liberty
in the late unhappy war, in which we hon
estly believe she was far more sinned against
Now, if the Southern States, for the tem
porary gratification of a feeling of partisan
ship, or of that freedom which they enjoyed,
shall place themselves in a position which
shall exclude them from all the benefits of
the government, that will obviously -be un
wise. But if, on the other hand, they make
concessions that are humiliating and uncon
stitutional, the present gain will be vastly
overbalanced by the future loss. This is the
t rying position of the South, and demands
wisdom, calmness and fortitude.
There seems to be no hope for the Presi
dent's policy. Congress will probably be in
dorsed by the North and strengthened. A
week or two ago we gave a statement of the
President's views and their logical consequen
ces in the broadest and boldest language we
could. They involve a denial of the legitima
cy of the present Congress. Can the President
in practice go to this length, seeing that he
has so repeatedly acknowledged its legiti
mate existence by addressing his messages
to the body and signing the bills it has pass
ed? Suppose he should have a collision
with Congress, would the South gain there
by ? The whole question would be thrown
again into the uncertain motions of war.
Shall the Southern States adopt tJte constitu
tutional amendment t This is the most im
portant question of the day a question in
whose solution every citizen of the South
will have an interest. That it may be care
fully studied we reproduce it ;
JOINT KESOLUTIOISr PROPOSING AN AMEND
MENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNI
Be it enacted by the
' Senate and House of
United States of Ameri
Representatives of the
ca in Congress assembled (two-thirds of both
Houses concurring,) That the following ar
ticle be proposed to the Legislatures of the
several states as an amendment to tne con
stitution of the United States, which, when
ratified by three-fourths of said Legislatures,
shall be valid as part of the Constitution,
ARTICLE XTV. Section 1. All persons
bora or naturalized in the United States and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens
of the United States and of the State where
in they reside. No State shall make or en
force any law which shall abridge the privil
eges or immunities ot citizens ot the United
States ; nor shall any State deprive any per
son of life, liberty, or property, without due
process of law, nor deny to any person with-
iii lisjuriuiciion tne equal protection oi tne
Sec. 3. Representatives shall be apportion
ed among the several States according to
their respective numbers, counting the whole
number ot persons in each State, excluding
Indians not taxed. But when the right to
vote at any elections for the choice of elect-
ore tor President and Vice-President of the
United States, Representatives in Congress,
the executive and judicial officers of a State,
or the members of the Legislature thereof, is
denied to any of the male inhabitants of such
btate, being twenty-one years yt age and cit
izens oi the united States, or in any way
abridged, except for participation in rebell
ion or other crime,the basis of representation
therein shall tc reduced in the proportion
which the number of such male citizens shall
bear to the whole number of male citizens
twenty-one years of age in such State.
Sec. 3. No person shall be a Senator or
Representative in Congress, or elector of
President and Vice-President, or hold any
omce, civil or military, under the United
States, or under any State,who having previ
ously taken an oath, as a member of Con
gress, or as an officer of the United States, or
as a member of any State Legislature, or as
and executive or judicial officer of any State
to support the Constitution of the United
States, shall have engaged in insurrection or
rebellion against the same, or given aid and
comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress
may, ty a vote oi two-thirds ot each House,
remove such disability.
Sec. 4. The validity of the public debt of
the United btates, authorized by law includ
ing debts incurred for payment of pensions
and bounties for services in suppressing in
surrection and rebellion, shall not be ques
tioned, isut neitner tue united states nor
anv State shall assume or pay any debt or
obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or
rebellion against the United States, or any
claim for the loss or emancipation of any
slave ; but all such debts, obligations, or
claims, shall be held illegal and void.
Sec. 5. The Congress shall have power to
enforce, by appropriate legislation, the pro
visions of this article.
The question occurs to each man at once,
What will be the effect of the adoption of
this amendment by my Btate ? Obviously a
very great diminution of her proportion of
representation in Congress, as compared with
what it was before the war. Practically, that
seems to be all. The first section is a gener
ality, declaring who are citizens of the Uni
ted States. The second has the gift of the
whole matter. That does not enforce negro
suffrage. It implies that each State may
adopt laws which shall exclude the servile
race from the ballot-box ; or the laws may be
so framed as to embrace the property qualifi
cation of New-York, or the literary qualifica
tion of Massachusetts, or both. It is left with
each State to decide. The principle, how
ever, will be settled that the representation
shall be proportioned to the Toting popula
tion, and the State may enlarge or diminish
that at pleasure. Abstractly this is just. We
suppose all will agree on that. The third
section excludes from the enjoyment of office
the best men in the South. What Congress
would call a "rebellion," is understood there
simply to be an assertion of constitutional
liberty and the taking up of arms to repel
armed foes invadingone's State. These men
are now excluded from all the honors and
emoluments of office, and under this section
may be restored by a vote of Congress. The
provisions of the fourth section have already
been accomplished by the action of the States
It seems to us that the true policy of the
Southern States is to await the impending
elections, which will declare the mind ot the
majority of the people of the North, by which
verdict Congress must be governed, and so
must the conquered South. If those elections
emphatically declare against the President's
policy, and in favor of the constitutional
amendment, t hen the people of the South
may consider whether they will go on endur
ing all the ills and disabilities of their pres
ent situation, or adopt the amendment and
seek to make the most of a very bad and a
very hard bargain. Of course the adotion of
the amendment will not be understood as in
dorsing such stuff ns the phrase " except for
participation in rebellion or other crime," if
it be meant to stigmatize the glorious fight
for freedom which the South fought by the
hands of its " noble martyrs," but simply as
saying, " Seeing we can do no better, we ac
cept this at the hand of our conquerors."
It is to be remarked that the adoption of
this amendment does not secure thereturn of
the States to Congress. Congress may then
demand something more. No guarantee is
given. Tennessee was admitted, but not
until all essence of a republican form of gov
ernment was expressed from the State, and
representatives were elected by a minority,
and that minority the very worst of the pop
ulation of Tennessee. The best citizens have
been disfranchised.. Congress has already
claimed the right, as it has the power, to
override its constitutional prerogative in
judging of returns, and it would not be in
consistent with its pretensions if it determin
ed that none but a negro should represent
North-Carolina, none but a Massachusetts
man should represent Alabama, and none
bul a Federal soldier should represent Louis
iana. It seems to claim the right to go be
yond the only points confided to its decision
by the Constitution, namely, whether the
claimants of a seat have the constitutional
qualifications of age, residence, and election.
If any man blame the South, let him re
collect the embarrassments of the situation.
All these things may be done, and nothing
come of it. The Independent declares the
South shall never have its representation
nn til negro suffrage be granted. When we
have pointed gentlemen of the Republican
party to the assertion, they have said that
the Iadependent is edited by a hair-brained
young man, and must not be taken as the
exponent of Northern feeling. But it is the
most widely-circulated of all the Northern
weeklies, and while it may not represent the
better class of Northern minds, it must rep
resent a very large voting population, and
there is where the power to inflict the
damage resides : and that embarrasses the
There will be no further humiliation in
the adoption of this amendment. It is forced
upon the people. It is this, or certain ruin ;
it may be this and ruin, After a State has
repudiated the debt she contracted to defend
heiself from an invading foe, there is no
"lower deep." If it were done voluntarily,
pivpi'io motu, it would be the fiual infamy;
but done under bayonet, it becomes a grief
rather than a diasgrace. into that catagory
must be put all similar deeds.
As any representation is better than none;
if any Southern State shall adopt this amend
ment and thereby secure its place in Con
gress, great gains may eventually follow.
The reigning faction may demand for the
present that none but those who wero faJse
to their State and treacherous to their home,
their friends and bretheren, shall be admit
ted to Congress. But this thing may grad
ually improve. There are large numbers of
noble liberal men at the North, wao abhor,
injustice; and although now they, are-in a
minority, they have a certain moral influence
which must be felt. And then, we repeat,
any representation is better than none. The
South needs more men and more money.
We know that there are men, who would
make good citizens in any State,- who are
deterred from moving to the South because
they have what is common to Americans
a dislike to living where taxes must be paid
and no representation enjoyed. If he
amendment be adopted, and the Southern
States admitted, there will be a speedy ac
quisition to the numbr of voting men. and
thus the small representation will gradually
grow. Capital will flow iu. Men who
know what prodigious bargains there are in
Southern real estate will invest. They
know that if they buy one half of a man's es
tate that very money will be employed to
improve the other half, and thus their own
investments will be inproved.
These are some of the hopeful views of the
case. But in any event each Southern State
must decide for itself, not what is best, for
that cannot be had, but what it is possible
to obtain from its conqueror. It is a dark
hour. God save the Commonwealth !
